Schadenfreude




Steven Pinker says about âschadenfreude,â a German emotion word with no English translation: âWhen English-speakers hear the word Schadenfreude for the first time, their reaction is not, 'Let me see ... Pleasure in another's misfortunes... What could that possibly be? I cannot grasp the concept; my language and culture have not provided me with such a category.' Their reaction is, 'You mean there's a word for it? Cool!'" (Pinker, 1997, p. 367). Pinker, S. (1997). How the mind works. New York: Norton. Haven't found the SciAm article yet, but here's a proper reference: Spears, R. and Leach, C. W.
